Food: Lexicon of Sustainability Exhibit

Leave a comment

Still time to see this thought-provoking exhibit about food culture!

The Center’s FOOD: Lexicon of Sustainability exhibit examines social justice in relation to the production and consumption of food in the United States. Developed by media innovators Douglas Gayeton and Laura Howard-Gayeton, the LEXICON OF SUSTAINABILITY™ is based on a simple premise: people will live more sustainabily if they understand the most basic terms and principles that will define the next economy.


By illuminating the vocabulary of sustainable agriculture, and with it the conversation about America’s rapidly evolving food culture, the insights presented in this exhibit educate and engage people to pay closer attention to how they eat, what they buy, and where their responsibility begins for creating a healthier, safer food system. For more information on the project check out their website, www.thelexicon.org, which provides people around the world with tools to create communities and conversation around transformative ideas.

The Center would like to thank the Cal Poly Pomona Food Justice Club, Professor Daniel F. Yuhasz, and Tim Macias for making this exhibit possible.
